Antique Bleach Bottle With Grapes

This is the latest in the series of still lifes in oils.  It is painted on a 12" x 9" canvas panel.  I started it a couple weeks ago,   got back to it yesterday afternoon for a while and finished it today.  The grapes are a little too tight for my taste (sour grapes, you know) but this will have to do.

I think it is beautiful, Barb. I love that green ceramic plate and you did a beautiful job on that old bleach bottle.

Barb, I love the composition of this and like your grapes a lot...too bad they are sour! The drape in the background is very well-done.

I have a small collection of antique bottles that I keep thinking I should do a still life set-up with, but then I think of something else I should paint first and it goes back into my bucket list. Might have to do that sooner,rather than later, after seeing this.
